Hey! Have a glorious Christmas Day!
I thought I would start with that as I sit here in my front room, feeling pretty pleased with myself about the life I have created. The freedom lifestyle that I am sometimes too silly to notice. Especially when I get bogged down in how much struggle there has been and there still can be to take it up a notch to the next level for me.
I forget time and time again that there is glory, power, freedom, wealth in the struggle…
I am always forward-focused and it can cause me to forget what I have created in the now…
And I sit here journalling it all out and saying thank you to God that I am this person, with this life that may not be perfect but is a far-cry from where I began!
And I sit here considering you and how I see your struggle and I see you wanting to be somewhere other than here and I want all that you want for you and a heckuva lot more than that. Because I find it so much easier to believe for you than you find it to believe for yourself which is one of the BIG reasons that you need to be working with me in the Deliberate Millionaire because you trying to do it all yourself is proving tough, isn’t it?
You don’t know whether to go forward or backwards…
You don’t know whether you are even on the right path…
Because you feel stuck right now.
And yet, I want to remind you that there is glory, power, wealth, in your struggle if you will choose to stay on path and that is another reason why you must join the Deliberate Millionaire Club
Yes, the struggle is real…
And on this Christmas day, I find myself thinking of the Christmas story and how it all started with a struggle…
I mean, there was a virgin in a society that probably made her feel second class, simply because she was born female. She gets told that she is now going to give birth to a child out of wedlock – Definitely NOT the done thing!
There is a man who now has to marry this girl who is pregnant with a child that is not his.
There is a journey ON A DONKEY!!! when heavily pregnant! I assure you that that would not have been my preferred mode of transport when heavily pregnant with any of my 3 princesses.
There is sleeping in a stinky stable and GIVING BIRTH IN THERE too…
NO mention of midwives in this story!
Then just when all you want to do is go to sleep and rest from the trauma of it all, people want to see your baby and expect you to let them in.
Yes, it is a little exciting to be the center of so much attention but really, it must have been a struggle!
Maybe she was still bleeding even and feeling torn up inside, giving birth is no easy feat. I KNOW!
And yet, you plaster a smile on your face and keep going. After all, you have been given a massive gift so hey, you keep showing up, right?!
And then just when you think you can have a bit of a break, there is some mad superstitious king who wants to kill your child so back up on the donkey you climb, and flee.
And in those moments, you wonder why the heck you are being put through this.
You want to lie down and rest and yet, you can’t.
The struggle continues…
And you keep moving forward because you believe that this child, this baby is worth the effort…
But you don’t actually know that for a fact!
After all, it all seems impossible.
BUt you go through the struggle…
You just keep plodding forward because you have been given a vision of what could come from it…
And you choose to believe it.
Maybe you believe it because you need to believe that your life has meaning, that your life matters…
Maybe you feel a little deluded for believing it but you choose to believe anyway.
And you keep moving forward, keeping your eyes on the prize, on the goal, on the promise…
And in the end, because you did, people are talking about you, your family, your courage thousands of years after it happened.
Yet, at the time, you did not know that that would be the effect of your efforts, you just kept moving forward believing in a vision that you almost had no reason to believe in.
Except that Spirit kept speaking to you, reminding you who you were called to be and you chose to respond.
After all, you could simply have said no, it all seems too silly and I refuse to be taken in by it.
Or no, it all seems to grand for little old me.
YOu could have come up with all kinds of excuses and we would never have known you.
But they did not and now, most children are taught this story…
A lot of countries celebrate this day.
My life is definitely different because of the struggle of these people. I might be stuck in some village in Africa, the 99th wife of some dude, looking for meaning and love in my kids, if some missionaries who believed this story had not come over and somehow, got my Dad to the UK to study.
So, yes, I am blessed because some people struggled way before I was born.
So, honey, all that to say – There is glory, wealth, power, purpose and freedom in your struggle.
Do not give up!
You do not know the far-reaching effects of your struggle.
Have a great Christmas
